TOS (Transport & Offshore Services) has been awarded a three-year frame agreement as a preferred supplier for personnel with Van Oord, a leading contractor for dredging, marine engineering and offshore energy projects (oil, gas and wind). This agreement marks a milestone for TOS in its drive to build on its expertise and growth in the maritime & offshore crew business. The contract will be managed from its headquarters in Rotterdam and will involve ad-hoc and project-based assignments for offshore crew, maritime crew and construction crew.
